Omron’s SMD photomicrosensors reduce assembly time by eliminating a separate soldering step. Instead, the SMD can be mounted by reflow soldering with other components. As the terminal is not needed, there is no need to allow space for circuit and installation parts. This can reduce the volume by 65% compared to terminal type products. PIC output makes circuit design easy and enables output with high-speed reply. The tiny size of this PMS makes it ideal in devices where space is limited, like label printers and sewing machines. It is also used in smart meters, slot machines, rice cookers and coffee-makers.
